The youngsters started the season ahead of the curve and now we are at week 9, which has allowed the competition to catch up and in some cases surpass the Buckeyes level of play.  The youth is starting to show.  Especially among the receiving corp and the lack of development of JT under Beck's coaching.  The O-line is good and cannot keep everyone out for more than 3-4 seconds due to JT holding the ball waiting for someone to get separation.  Expectations of going to the big game was a little lofty and based on the youth this team has, was unrealistic.

The only time I would bet the Bucks is as an underdog.  There is none better as an underdog.  NW too hot for -23.  Only the future knows.  Bucks still control their destiny provided Michigan wins out up to 'The Game'.

When you have no passing attack, you cannot run the ball effectively.  The safeties were playing the run all game and daring JT to throw the ball.  Hence, the Samuels 65 yard run with nobody past the line of scrimmage.  JT has regressed since Herman leaving and Beck coming in.  No wide receiver play that is worth talking about.  These  4-5 star receivers might as be no stars.  They cannot run routes and gain separation.  That is why JT is holding the ball so long.  Meyer needs to assess his coaching staff, because you cannot teach 4-5 star recruits with no star coaches, especially on offense.  Time for Beck to leave, new OC, Warriner stays as line coach only and a receiver coach that can teach, Hazell was the Buckeyes receiver coach under Tressel and is available.  To be honest, no way this team beats Michigan and looks to struggle next week with a hot Northwestern team coming in.  As far as playoffs, next year is more realistic.  As much as it hurts me to say this also, Alabama would steam roll this team as well as the Washington Huskies.  Remember College football is a world of no room for error, one loss and your chances of playing for the big prize becomes very difficult.

Another he said which is not firsthand.  It is here say and completely 3rd party.  This means nothing and to let the liberal witch hunt continue denies him of Due Process.  Go somewhere else and do your witch hunt.  I find something so many years after the fact to be irrelevant.  Here say, nothing more.

Comment 22 Feb 2016

I agree with Iowa and Mich St as a possible contender, but Maryland has quality talent and bench with a mediocre coach.  Terps will get bounced their second game.  I am waiting to see if the Bucks can follow through with their remaining schedule.  They have an opportunity to make a statement and bounce the Badgers from consideration.  We shall see.

Ohio State has never lost on the road under Urban Meyer.  I find Ohio State a better road team than home.  They seem to play with an attitude on the road.  Home field advantage has never been a benefit of late for the Buckeyes.

Comment 01 Dec 2015

Through the several years that I have been following Buckeye football (48 years), they have never won a National Championship when the expectation was there.  It has always happened unexpectedly.  Usually, being ranked preseason #1 is the kiss of death.  Seldom has the preseason favorite ever won.  Despite our disappointment with the Michigan St loss, the season was another great season.  I am still holding out for a miracle on Saturday from football Jesus

Comment 22 Nov 2015

Due to the inept coaching of the offense, this team was a pretender all season long.  We all thought it was Cardale Jones, but the play calling of Warriner and Beck has been suspect all year.  Warriner should go back to offensive line and Beck should be shown the door with Meyers foot planted in his ass pushing him out the door with a get the f**k out.  If and when recruits begin to decommit, this will be a reality.

Comment 21 Nov 2015

It upsets me that these young men with offensive talent were cheated out of a great season because of their horrid offensive coaching and play calling.  As many have said Beck needs to be given the boot and Warriner goes back to offensive line.  If I was a young offensive recruit visiting, I would be looking elsewhere for a coaching staff that can make me elite.  These clowns cannot.  They should wear red squeaky noses for the Michigan game.

Comment 21 Sep 2015

The offense is struggling without a true identity.  The team lacks the receivers to stretch the field.  With no deep threat, I believe JT should be the starter.  With JT starting, the best of Braxton can be utilized as well as Zeke in the spread offense running the read option.  I love Cardale, but the Bucks have no long ball game which Cardale is better suited for.

Comment 19 Sep 2015

The missing ingredient is Tom Hermann.  I want to be patient, but the offensive woes are rather disturbing.  How about the new quarterback coach Tom Beck?  Seems like getting 2 veteran quarterbacks returning would yield better play.  It all starts with coaching..  OC responsibilities for Warinner may be taking away from his offensive line duties.  Only time will tell, but I am sure Urban has had this on his mind.

Comment 07 Sep 2015

Excellent article and many key points.  I truly believe Coach Meyer will start JT due to the rationale above, but I think Cardale expertise comes into play when Tech stacks the box to shutdown Elliot.  I believe Tech will get a dose of both but depending on the situation and momentum, Cardale will get more reps tonite.  JT will be the season starter, but Cardale will be the man tonite.

Comment 15 Aug 2015

I remember the game very well as a young man.  The Buckeyes could do nothing on offense against Michigan  Gordon Bell from Troy, Oh outplayed Archie in that game.  The play was referred as the 7:11 play due to time on the clock when the Buckeyes started to come back.  It is tough to beat a good team like UCLA twice.  The Bucks destroyed the Bruins in the first match  41-20 and the game was never close.

Comment 12 Jul 2015

Similar to the 1969 team.  The team had crushed just about every opponent in that season and was being heralded as the best college football team in the history of college football.  1969 was the centennial for college football, but you can guess who spoiled that season.  Bo Schembechler in his first year beat Woody 24-12 to spoil a perfect season.  The real downside back then was no bowl game due to the rules back in the day.  Let's make it different this time.  These guys seem to always carry a chip on their shoulder after 2 undefeated years with no credit.

What coach is going to guarantee Miller will start, if he would transfer.  He will not be able to go full speed until this summer.  He is a true Buckeye.  He carried this team when all of Urban's recruits were maturing.  How will he fair on a team that is seasoned.  He deserves the chance.
